I need to go right back on my medications so I can't breastfeed at all but I also still need to be able to function. I know about cabbage leaves which didn't seem to do much last time and doctor said not to do the whole tight bra thing.
Any more tips?

Other than cabbage leaves to relieve the pain and a sports bra, just time. And cold compresses (like a bag of peas wrapped in a towel or something for 20 minutes at a time). Do not use warm because that will encourage more milk production and cause more pain. So will pumping, unless you are freezing your milk.
